Director Statement

It doesn’t bother me if a film doesn’t have a genre, I like going where my characters take me. My characters are mostly drifters, loaners, have gone through some kind of a trauma and they are often searching for something. They are completely opposite of me so I guess I’m fascinated by them.

I wrote The Clockmaker with the idea I would be directing the film and would have a budget. I didn’t ask anyone for any money (didn’t know who to ask) and didn’t know any producers in town who were willing to hand out cash to unknown filmmakers, so obviously when the time came we didn’t have any money, equipment or locations. I tried being structured and organized but in reality I was panicking. So finally I started asking for help. And it arrived. Not in form of money or big production vehicles but something better. We were able to complete this film with help and support of our families, friends, neighbors and community for which I am grateful and consider myself extremely lucky to have people around me who gave up their entire summer, weekends, opened their homes and businesses. I am still in shock that we actually completed this film. It has been a great journey. I met some great people along the way and reconnected with some old friends.
